MEDIA ADVISORY, April 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- Two weeks from today (May 11-13), World Congress of Families IV will convene in Warsaw at the Palace of Culture and Science. To date, more than 2,500 pro-family leaders, activists, scholars and parliamentarians (from over 60 countries) are registered for the largest international gathering of its kind.
Delegates are coming from as far away as Argentina, Mexico, Kenya, Nepal and New Zealand to work for realization of the Congress’s theme: Beyond Demographic Winter: The Natural Family As The Springtime for Nations.
The Congress will consider such timely topics as: gender rights or family rights – demographic winter as the new population crisis – the family home as the center of upbringing and education – family enterprises and family independence – the effects of marital fidelity and harmony on the family – what’s wrong with cohabitation? – the harm of “same-sex marriage” – media and the family: threats and opportunities – how abortion undermines the family – and the impact of pornography on the family.
A stellar lineup of speakers includes Poland’s President Lech Kaczynski (who will also serve as honorary patron of the Congress), Allan Carlson (founder and international secretary of WCF), Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo (president of the Pontifical Council for the Family), Archbishop Majdanski (founder of the Polish Institute for Studies of the Family), Paige Patterson (former president of the Southern Baptist Convention), Ellen Sauerbrey (Assistant Secretary of State for Refugees and Migration), Anna Zaborska (Member of the European Parliament for Slovakia) and Dana Scalon (MEP for Ireland)
World Congress of Families International Secretary Allan Carlson commented: “There’s no denying that the eyes of the world’s families will be upon us. Delegates are not coming to Warsaw from the four corners of the earth just to hear exciting speakers and participate in lively discussions, but to help formulate a pro-family strategy for the 21st. century and beyond. They will assist us in the ongoing work which started in Prague in 1997 with World Congress of Families I and continued in Geneva in 1999 and Mexico City in 2004 – forging an international pro-family movement that reminds rulers and elites that the natural family is the indispensable building bloc of a humane society.”

The World Congress of Families (WCF) is an international network of pro-family organizations, scholars, and leaders that seeks to restore the natural family as the fundamental social unit and the ‘seedbed’ of civil society. The WCF was founded in 1997 by Allan Carlson, president of The Howard Center for Family, Religion & Society. To date, there have been three World Congresses of Families – Prague (1997), Geneva (1999) and Mexico City (2004). WCF IV will be in Warsaw, Poland, May 11-13, 2007.
